Kirsten Dunst Interview for "All Good Things!" She Was REALLY Good in the Film! 


“All Good Things” is inspired by the true-life story of Robert Durst, the son of the late New York real estate mogul Seymour Durst, and brother of commercial developer Douglas Durst.

In 1973, Durst married Kathleen McCormack who vanished in 1982. Then, on December 24, 2000, Durst’s long-time friend, Susan Berman, was found murdered. Was he to blame for both murders?

The complexities of Durst’s life was put under the microscope in “All Good Things.” It’s the first full-feature narrative movie of Andrew Jarecki, who gave us the powerful 2003 documentary “Capturing the Friedmans.”

The names have been changed, of course, but the powerful, intriguing dynamics of the story remain the same.

In the film, Ryan Gosling is the Robert Durst character, David Marks, and Kirsten Dunst is his wife, Katie Marks. The movie works because of the chemistry of the two lead actors. “All Good Things” is a gripping love story with a Hitchcockian twist.

In this interview, Kirsten Dunst talked about:

*** What attracted her to making the movie?
*** Working with Jarecki
*** How she prepared for the role
*** Working with Gosling, and did he really give her flowers after pulling her hair in once scene?
*** Have you ever experienced that one true love? The instant dramatic attraction?
*** The whole Robert Durst saga

Have fun!


Here's more info on "All Good Things"

A love story and murder mystery set against the backdrop of a New York real estate dynasty in the 1980s, inspired by the most notorious missing person's case in New York history. Robert Durst, scion of the wealthy Durst family, was suspected but never tried for killing his wife Kathie who disappeared in 1982 and was never found.

Cast and Credits

Starring: Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, Frank Langella, Lily Rabe, Philip Baker Hall
Directed by: Andrew Jarecki
Produced by: Michael London, Marc Smerling, Andrew Jarecki

Georgie Henley and Will Poulter Talk About "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" 


Georgie Henley (Lucy Pevensie) and Will Poulter (Eustace Scrubb) are starring in the upcoming “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.” It’s the third installment of the popular series that almost didn’t happen. Walt Disney Pictures dropped the threequel from its roster and then Twentieth Century Fox, in a very Aslan way, saved the franchise.

In this interview, Georgie and Will talked about:

*** How they felt after hearing the news that the third film was a go?
*** Georgie’s all grown up and ready to give Lucy an older spin!
*** How did it feel returning to the magical world of Narnia for Georgie? And how did it feel joining the Narnia gang for the first time for Will?
*** The creatures of Narnia

Kristen Bell Interview for "Burlesque!" Oh Yeah, She Talks About "Scream 4" As Well! 


Christina Aguilera and Cher are front and center in the new musical “Burlesque,” but Kristen Bell also gives it all as Aguilera’s nemesis, Nikki. In this interview, we talked about:

*** Working with Aguilera and Cher
*** Who scared and intimidated her the most?
*** Going back to her musical roots
*** Donning a black wig
*** Tapping her inner sensuality
*** Does she have what it takes to be a pop star like her co-star?

Bell also gave us a little wink-wink, nudge-nudge to her role in the upcoming film, “Scream 4” from Wes Craven.

Check out my fun interview with the wonderful Kristen Bell:



Take a look at my other interviews with Bell:

“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”
“When in Rome”

Here's more info on "Burlesque"

Ali is a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to LA. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess, the club's proprietor and headliner. Burlesque's outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day. Soon enough, Ali builds a friendship with a featured dancer, finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer, and garners the affection of Jack, a bartender and fellow musician. With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager and gender-bending host, Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage. Her spectacular voice restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, though not before a charismatic entrepreneur arrives with an enticing proposal.

Starring: Cher , Christina Aguilera, Eric Dane, Cam Gigandet, Julianne Hough

Produced by: Dana Belcastro, Stacy Cramer, Donald De Line
